A Quiet Day with The Rev. Jim Clark

Saturday, January 14, 9:30 – 1pm | Sanctuary + Zoom

Epiphany and the Transformation of Consciousness

The season of The Epiphany begins with the story of the Magi and ends with the Transfiguration of Jesus. Both stories are meant to move us beyond our normal seeing. Saint Paul invites the same when he prays … that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be so strengthened that you come to know the love that surpasses knowing. On this quiet day, we will explore how the practices of silence, the Lord’s Prayer, and praying the scriptures can remove our inner obstacles and open us more and more to boundless Presence, and boundless love.

“Nothing could be more down-to-earth or more humbling than this boundless Presence, which just is. It doesn’t have to prove itself. It doesn’t have to acquire anything. It just is”. – Thomas Keating

Rest in the peace of God on Quiet Day with Rev. Jim

The contemplative life is actually quite simple and accessible to everyone. It is simply the intention to pause, to be still, and, by faith, to rest in Christ’s presence within. Quiet Day includes reflections by Rev. Jim, quiet solitary time, and sessions of communal silent prayer in the Sanctuary. Participants are welcome to the Sanctuary, to quiet areas for reading or journaling, or to walk our beautiful grounds. The day concludes with Holy Eucharist. Please bring your Bible. All are welcome.
